Smile Autopsyche's Mitsubishi 3000GT ICE...

Hey Guys

For all those in the know, Arush finally ICE'd his baby... (For the others, linky linky) And though we don't post installs here anymore, here is a small SQ install you may like. Enjoy!

The Story Begins...

The car came with this Pioneer Double DIN HU




Stock tweeter location, up on the dash



Stock Tweeter removed...



Stock Tweeter close up





Now onto the doors...



stock midbass location



Door panel removed, a pioneer coax was installed in the stock location by the earlier owner



Inner side of the door panel



The Boot of the car with space saver wheel and utility pockets in place



Utility pocket removed. Why? Read on...



Stock 6x9 location behind front seats



Again, Pioneer ovals installed by earlier owner



Car being stripped of almost entire interior



Boot Stripped



Work starts on sub enclosure, which will be where the utility pocket was on the floor. Note masking work on interior plastic panels.



Fiberglass work progresses





Rough edges eliminated



Sub ring being made

Mr Fancy Schmancy coat himself, Mukul Patel of Patel Auto



A layer of FonoGel used for the enclosure's internal sealing





More stripping









And then begins the damping of the car and boy did we damp it







They even damped the fuel pump cover





Wondering whats going in?

The sub enclosure again, now carpeted





AZcomp AT25G terminal cup used for connections at the rear of the enclosure



test fitted again



Internal cabling for sub enclosure





cable from amp plugs in into rear of enclosure, like so





while internal cable plugs into sub like so



Final test fit of enclosure



Cables going in...





Connection Audison Reference SONUS ST interconnects used





Cables laid





And now back to the doors... umm... where the hell are the doors...



Yes, we removed the doors, why? cuz we can... heh heh, read on...
As you can see, the inner skin of the door has been damped



The doors were removed as there was no acceptable provision for routing the 12ga speaker cable into the door. Of course, we could always use the stock connector but that would involve cutting and splicing a cable that was already butchered by earlier installers (cough cough: hacks). The solution, we made a new hole...

Of course the hole was sealed with a grommet.



Where do you find such a grommet you ask, your friendly neighborhood workshop... or in this case...



Stock door cabling gets a new conduit



Doors get more damping



Close up of custom MDF ring installed on door





AZcomp FonoPol 1000 also used for damping






Panels finally go back on the doors once doors finally go back on the car



close up of custom ring installed



Cosmetic ring, finished with AZcomp vinyl



cosmetic ring installed



HERTZ HV165L high output 6.5" woofer going in





And the doors are GO! seen here with grill



Remember the rear stock 6x9 locations... we made new cosmetic rings for them, seen here with and without AZcomp vinyl



test fitted onto panel



And used as a crossover mount location

Back to electricals, stuff used for connections





Grounding point ready and grounding terminal installed





Earlier battery and connections



Battery Terminals changed



Car Battery to Ground cable upgraded



Battery replaced with Optima Yellow Top



Also note battery to car chassis ground installed



Waterproof fuseholder



Now to the HU, an Alpine 9857 with the full speed iPod cable









Alpine full speed iPod cable comes into glove compartment and HU installed. See the round black thingy in front of the HU, thats the controller for the bluetooth handsfree kit



and the kit's brain sits snug behind the HU



while the mic goes on the top of the A pillar and the little display onto the center of the dash, affixed to the windshield.







Now for the handsfree kit's dedicated speaker... we removed the ashtray.

contd from post #7

So we removed the ashtray and used the location to house the Bluetooth kit's speaker.





Of course we also fabricated a custom grill for this, covered with AZcomp speaker grill cloth





Now that things are beginning to look good, its time we go back to audio

Dome midrange and tweeter installed.





Audison LRx4.1K amp





Amp Installed, note trim plate on top with concealed neon lighting and plexiglass







More concealed lighting...



Boot top cover (fabricated from MDF) installed



Sub close up, note gap in floor board in front of sub



Sub gets cool ambient lighting effect





System power up time



HU checked, iPod interface checked





And she's done...



End result: As desired, a light yet powerful SQ setup that can sing as well as kick. All this with almost no loss in boot space or functionality. And the sound is very involving and enjoyable, especially the vocals and midbass. The sub integrates like crazy. FYI, The fronts get 130w per side and the sub gets 500w off the other 2 bridged channels. There is no EQ, XO or TA used on the HU.

The Bluetooth kit adds a new dimension of convenience, enables safe driving and works very well. Recommended for anyone who spends a lot of time on the road talking on the phone.

Do post any questions you have re the install and we will be glad to answer...


Cheers

This has gotta be the most detailed install-pics thread. Beyooootiful work. Your mouse finger must be real sore from all that uploading

As always, great install! And as always, I'm pissed there's no way I'll be able to listen to the car :(

Congrats on the setup, Arush! Enjoyyyyy!

Finally the Ice has been added to the Spice

Nice work as usual guys. I especially liked what you did with the custom enclosure for the subbie.
